A formula for Peace………..

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

” Jesus said the problem is within us: Out of the heart…….. proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: What a list! our real war is a rebellion against God- and it brings unending misery”

Mark 7;21;22

 

We all walk a path through this journey of life, just as Jesus did when he came to us. The difference between us within this society and the society back when Jesus walked his path is, we are far removed from the journey of Christ, so much so that it leaves us with much doubt and a lack of self confidence within the paths we walk. We are all so guilty of getting away from the house of God, because this society has become so fast paced, we use that as an excuse, to not enter the doors of the house of God on the Holy day of Sunday. But what we tend to forget in today’s world is, you don’t have to enter the house of God every Sunday if only you truly believe in God and Jesus Christ, they are deep within our hearts and souls, just that we have buried them so deep, we really can’t feel their love anymore. You can go to your favorite quiet place, whether in your home, or within nature, so you than can speak to God with your prayers, now some may say he never speaks back? Oh yes he does, just that you have to open your eyes and hearts wide, so not to only feel him within, but to see the signs he puts in front of you, to guide you along your path of this journey through life.

With all the ugliness and the hatred that surrounds us today, especially in the city of Chicago, where the violence is so bad, many are being killed in the streets daily, is all the proof we need to truly see of how true this quote from Mark really is. The evil will consume us when we don’t truly feel God’s love within our hearts and souls and when the evil consumes us so, we then bury deeply the true feelings of Christ, just so others won’t see us as weak? This is when we become someone for who we truly are not, this is when we not only lie to others, but we lie to ourselves, so we can try to be as normal as we think normal is. Now we are only doing what we need to do, to survive in this cruel and evil world.

God didn’t create this world, we ourselves created this world and we can only blame ourselves for all the ugliness and hatred that surrounds us. The solution is quite simple in that all we need to do is, bring Jesus back in our lives, truly feel his love deep within our hearts and souls, so we than can share this love with each other and not be ashamed of this feeling anymore. Out of love comes peace and joy, while out of evil brings all this hatred and ugliness, We the people of this society have to stand as one, against all the crap, then it will change over time, so we all can live in peace and true happiness.

I get the fact that fear has a strong hold on us today, simply because we have become to afraid of all the gangs and the violence they bring, we all have become a Victim of all these gangs, as we have let them just walk all over us? The time is now to basically treat these gangs as we did back as a child in school, when the Bully tried to control us with our fear and how do we handle this?  stand up to these gangs and put the fear of God right back in them and when we do it together as one, then eventually these gangs will disappear simply because, the fear they used on us, will not work anymore, making them, fear us, as they cower away, like the true coward that they are.

There will always be evil within this journey of life, we the people that walk this journey just have to be smarter, better and stronger, never lose the feeling of Jesus’s love within our hearts and souls, when we become a Victim of whatever, just stand up to whom or what that has made us the Victim, so we than can fix what we need to fix, then move forward better and stronger, as we walk our paths of this journey of life, in the peace and happiness that we all so deserve.

 

” The formula for peace is quite simple and within each of our hearts and souls”

” Good will always win over evil, just that we need to be stronger with more confidence in ourselves moving forward”

” The love of Jesus Christ is within us all, we just have to truly feel his love and acknowledge him as our savior who died for us all”

” Evil will always be within this journey, we just have to deal differently of the evil with confidence”

The view from the Summit

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

Hiking up a mountain is more than just going out for a jaunt, or some exercise, you don’t see a mountain and climb it just because it is there, you hike a mountain to look deeply in what you see, you hike a mountain to reach the summit of the mountain, so you can look out deeply into the horizon and truly see all the beauty all around you, while you sit and enjoy the peace and the serenity from all the true beauty.

Hiking up a mountain is a whole lot more than exercise, it is therapy for the soul. Sometimes you start out on a hike with some extra baggage, then just the pack on your back,  that extra baggage comes from the society for which we live. After a while our judgments get clouded, we become bothered by every little thing, our minds get filled with negativity and the positivity then disappears from the limelight. When you are hiking it is you, the trail and Mother nature which gives you a chance to escape and actually think of, what your next move will be. In this day of Social Media, some may hike just to brag on their social platforms, or maybe brag to others that they reached the summit of a certain mountain, they are not using what real hiking does for your soul properly, as when they come back from the summit, they feel even more clouded after, than before they even started the hike.

True hiking is the enjoyment of the hike, being on a trail and seeing things you normally would never see in your everyday life. The journey of climbing up a trail, to be as high as you can be, above the line of the tree tops, looking out into the horizon and really looking deeply into what you see, being one with yourself and Mother Nature, while you clear the clouds of your judgments, to think more clearly and to let the big weight of a society, melt away into the deep blue horizon. To hike properly along a trail and to the summit of a mountain, is to unwind, so you than can be truly of who you are and not the person that Society thinks you are, yes hiking is a free kind of therapy, that soothes your heart and soul, so you can move forward along your path of this journey through life, in peace and happiness always.

Hiking will bring change to you as you walk the trail of the mountain, whether it’s in the form of your surroundings, or it’s within you yourself with your attitude at the start of the hike, because at the beginning of the hike, you are filled with hatred and ugliness from a broken society, you are filled with negativity from the ugly society, then as you hike further, you can actually feel the negativity and the hatred, melt away and leave your body, making you feel much lighter as you move forward along the trail. The change that happens along the trail is within you and on the trail of the mountain, it not only helps you see the beauty in all that is around you, it helps beautify the soul deep within you, leaving you with good thoughts, more positivity than negativity and helps you stay true to who you are, without hiding in the plain sight of a society, because you are being someone you truly are not. Some of the trails you hike can be a lot of work, but when you hike properly up the mountain, it doesn’t feel like work, as you enjoy the hike and all the true beauty all around you, then when you reach the summit, you actually feel the peace and serenity deep within your heart and soul.

 

” Reaching the summit of any mountain is more than just bragging  on your social platform, it is therapy for the soul and us being of who we truly are”

” Check your negative baggage in the car as there is no room on the trail of the mountain you are hiking”

” Hiking is full of change all around you, even within you as you hike along the trail”

” To move forward along the hike, helps you move forward in society within the peace and joy around you”

” Sometimes we get so cluttered with the negative thoughts around us, that we then need a good hike within nature, to unclog ourselves from a broken society”

 

 

 

The Mountains are calling……….

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

To those who have never trekked upon any mountain, let alone mountains that stand tall before them. When climbing any mountain you first have to be prepared for any weather changes that mat occur, then there is the terrain whether rocky, muddy, degree of steepness, or fallen trees in your way, you need a good pair of hiking boots, as they will provide support, as well as give a good grip for all the different terrain you may encounter. Hiking up mountains like in this picture, isn’t just slapping on a pair of sneakers and running up a trail, you first have to study the trail on a map so you don’t get lost along the trail, what would happen if the markers of the trail are not there, as they may have been knocked down during a storm or for whatever reason? You need an idea of how to navigate on the trail and a compass in the pack is a good tool for all Hikers.

We may hike any mountain simply because it is there? But for some we hike that mountain, to look deeply into what we see. Mountains have a way about them, that changes us as we trek to their summits. We start along the trail with one mind set or attitude about us, but as the trail dictates to us, we then change our demeanor, change the way we think of the mountain, look deeply into what we see, so we than can see all the true beauty of the mountain. There are no two mountains alike, each mountain is unique just as we are unique to each other and each mountain has a tale to tell, we just have to look deeply into what we see and not just climb the mountain because it is there.

The tale of the mountain begins at the beginning of the trail, with the different plant life, the different animals you may encounter, as they call the mountain their home, then along the trail and as it to changes from under our feet with the degree of steepness or maybe the width, with a good drop right next too us. plus as we get closer to the summit, now everything still changes, especially how all the trees are getting smaller as we climb. The vegetation OH!!! so delicate, becomes very different and if you step off the trail and kill, the vegetation it now dies and takes hundreds of years to grow back. Now as you reach the final push to the summit, you find the rest of the trek all rock with the trees as big as a small plant, you are now above tree line, leaving you susceptible to all the weather that the mountain endures, not too mention, you are out in the wide open with no cover to seek.  The mountain has many tales as you trek up it’s trails, with your feet feeling the heartbeat of the mountain with each step. In some ways the journey to the summit of the mountain, is similar to the journey of life, you walk a trail within both, you endure many changes along the trails, when you don’t respect the trail like life, now you have some crap to get through, but when you walk the trail in life the right way, it will reward you greatly, just like the reaching the summit of the mountain, with the great views, that wait for you to enjoy the peace and happiness, of a trail well blazed.

 

” The mountain is calling, you simply just look deeply into what you see, to truly understand what the mountain is telling”

” Hiking up a mountain is more than just physical exercise, it is true exercise for the mind, body and soul as well”

” Mountains will have an effect on all who trek them, that’s why there are many changes along the trail of the mountain”

” There are many rewards that come to us along this journey of life, but the reward of reaching the summit of any mountain, will take your breathe away with it’s beauty”

 

 

 

 

 

 

God Bless America this 4th of July

See the source image

 

 

 

 

 

This statue of lady Liberty was a gift from France to the United States, but really how many of the younger generation know of this? Seems like within this Society and with the younger generation, all they want to do is change everything of what made this country great, I get that the past is the past and you can not change what happened in the past, but in order to move forward better and stronger, you need to look back in the past, see what we did wrong, so we than can fix what needs to be fixed to move forward in the future, better and stronger.

 

” You can not dwell in the past,  but you can glance back to move forward better stronger:

 

Oh! Lady Liberty how big and beautiful you look, as you watch over this land called the United States of America, you look so majestic and smart as you stand guard over this great land. The Statue of Liberty stands a top the Island of Ellis, just off the main land of New York. Those that want to become a ” Legal” immigrant of this great country, will take a short ride on a boat, so they not just see how powerful our Lady Liberty is, but to stand before her as they get sworn into being a Citizen of this great land…………. The very foundation of this great country was built by the hands of Immigrants as well as natural born Citizens, BUT!!! When you sneak into this country and steal everything away from the real Citizens, who have worked very hard for themselves and those around them on this great land, now you are labeled with the word ” Illegal” , which is a nice way of saying you are doing something wrong and need to be punished for your wrong doings. True there may be some who will not acknowledge the word ” Illegal”, and just might call others a “Racist”, simply because they speak the truth, well these are the types of people that just don’t get it and have lost all sense of reality, then force their beliefs and misconceptions on the rest of us.

We need to stop acting like little children fighting and bickering because we can’t get our own way, we need to get back to being a responsible Adult, who respects everything and everybody around them, so we all can then walk our paths of this journey, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve. The way we are acting toward each other now is not of how, those of America’s past acted as they built the foundation of this great country, they would be rolling in their graves if they knew of all the crap and ugliness we are bringing to each other now, America was not built on stupidity as we are doing now, it was built on smarts and a lot of hard work, like the roll up your sleeves and get to work, type of hard work, it’s time to look back within history, so we can fix what we need to fix, then move forward better and stronger with each step of this journey.

So instead of just being a weekend warrior this 4th of July, or simply just showing up at a party for food and drinks and then watching fireworks at night, let’s remember first of the what the 4th truly means? Which is America’s birthday, just as each of us have a birthday, then let’s remember those who fought the good fight, so we than can celebrate with our cookouts, celebrate as we become a weekend warrior, or even celebrate as the fireworks light up the night sky, because those that fought the good fight, did so as we are now Free to do what and as we want to do. It is hard to see the true meaning of anything, when all we are doing is, fighting and bickering at each other and really over nothing, because we are just spitting words, instead of actually saying words, so let’s show more of our love and empathy that is deep within us all. then we all can be at peace, while we walk our paths of this journey in happiness always.

 

” America the beautiful is for all who walk their paths correctly without using the word of ” Illegal””

” The past will always be behind us, but it will always be there to keep us moving forward better and stronger”

” America will always be of Freedom, life, liberty and growth, it will never be of being illegal at anything within this great country”

 

 

 

 

Corruption is dirty, break out the soap

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

 

This rock face on this mountain at one time, was the home of a very famous face. A face that was well known throughout the world, even though it was kind of like  a stone face, that never took a breathe, The name of the stone face was the Old man of the mountain and you could only make out the face when, you look at the profile of the face, otherwise it was camouflaged and hidden within the rocks. You would think that this rock formation would stand the test of time?  But how quickly we forget, that through change all will come crumbling down and take on a whole different look.

Change not only  affects us, it also affects everything around us. Nothing ever stays the same, no matter how much we would want it too,. now some are very afraid to change, so they then embrace the comfortable rut for which they walk their paths through this journey of life.

Those within our Governments and who get voted into the office they hold, are the ones that not only fall deeply into their rut, but they resist any change for as long as they can. These men and woman within our Government when they become lost within their rut, they lose total sight of any kind of reality and they think that it must be their way or the highway, without any respect  for the ones that put them into their office in the first place. The job within the Government is not for themselves, it is also for every red blooded American throughout the entire country.

Now it seems pretty one sided that roughly 97% of all the Politicians are Lawyers, what are the Lawyers really good at……….. Lying, stretching the truth and the twisting around of the spoken word, or any words for that matter, so they than can get their way, over all that is around them. The Executives of the media very much the same, as they to are all Lawyers, get the theme here? This is totally the reason for all the corruption within all the walls of Washington DC. Now you have a Business man for President and all Hell is breaking loose within those same walls in Washington DC. Now the other issue is the media, as they won’t chat about everything that happens to best keep all of us within the reach of their drama, their half stories and their fake news, just to keep us spending our money into their pockets, so they can get richer and we get poorer.  All corruption is dirty, just that the ones that are corrupt, are the ones that can look clean, even without breaking out the soap, which being a lawyer, will help you chat up a story from a beat up piece of crap at the junk yard, to a Maserati $200,000 dollar vehicle. We need to end all this dirty corruption and if that means to totally change the walls within Washington DC, then so be it, but it needs to be done before it’ s too late and we still have a country to call home, as we walk our path through this journey of life.

 

” Corruption can’t be cleaned with soap, it needs us all to unite as one so corruption can go down the drain with the rest of the dirt”

” Change affects us and everything around us, which is why we need to embrace it and not rebel against it”

” The theme of the government is one sided and one way, being my way or the highway, time for true change with unity for true strength”

” Time to end the dirty corruption, so we all can look clean and not just a chosen few”

 

 

 

 

 

Drain the Swamp of Corruption.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

 

The Swamp of corruption isn’t of any body of water that needs to be cleaned up, it is all the branches of the government within the capitol of………..Washington D. C. The swamp is usually not pretty, full of muck and who knows what lies deep within the swamp? The swamp in Washington D. C. is full of money hungry, back stabbing, hypocrites. They will say what we want to hear so they can enter into the swamp, then as they get settled within the swamp, will then do the complete opposite of what they said and totally operate for themselves, forgetting about the ones who voted them in, to their nice plush office.

The Candidate Donald Trump said he would ” drain the swamp”, unlike those who are already in the swamp, the now President Donald Trump is doing as he said and totally draining the swamp. While all the people in the swamp have their hand out for all the kick backs, President Trump doesn’t need the kick backs, as he already has made more than any kick back that could be given to him. President Trump is a business man first, who is learning on the job, of what a Politician is and so far is doing a pretty dam good job. The establishment of his party can not control him, which makes him very volatile to them and very unpredictable to them as well. President Trump is a very sincere guy, who shoots from the hip, he says what he means and does as he says, which in the eyes of a Politician……….. Is very hard for them to not just deal with, but to read as a person for what his next move will be, now yes President Trump is a bit rough around the edges, when it comes to the way he speaks, but this is exactly what you get, when you deal with a person who does not believe in Political Correction.

Political Correction in a lot of ways has made us all weak, made us all not able to handle any kind of truth anymore, afraid to talk to anybody as we don’t want to offend anybody as well, it has isolated us from this World full of people, which has made us all afraid of any kind of conflict and has forced us into a safe cocoon, so we won’t be hurt by anything. We don’t cry anymore cause we don’t feel real pain and hurt, so we don’t let the tears heal us, so we than can fix what we need to fix, to move forward better and stronger, through this journey of life. Within this Society we look at crying as a sign of weakness, but on the contrary, it is a way to heal us, so we can be stronger along our paths of this journey. As we walk our paths of this journey, we don’t have to be the way of Political Correction, if only we simply be who we truly are, showing the love and empathy that is deep within all our hearts and souls, then share the love with each other, instead of attacking each other within the world of Political Correction.

President Trump said he would drain the swamp of corruption within Washington D. C. He is totally doing just that and all those corrupt people are running scared, cause they are so afraid of being outed, not too mention they don’t want to lose the good thing they have had for so long. Those within Washington D. C. have no clue of how to handle President Trump, just as all the media agencies also have no clue how to deal with him either, which is why they create so much ” Fake news”, instead of bringing us the real and truthful news. Fake news is what completes the agendas of all the media’s, so they than can fill our world with unnecessary drama, which is how they make their money and live their exotic lifestyles, while the rest of us, rub together two nickels to get a dime, not too mention the trying to take down a seated President, simply because he wasn’t the one they endorsed.

The time is now for each of us within this Society to “86” this political correct world we are in, grow up and walk our paths of this journey correctly, so we all can be at peace and joy with each step we take. It is a lot easier to to walk this journey correctly, it is very hard to keep up with the political correction, as we have to work everyday at it. Jesus Christ showed us all just how too walk this journey, he even died for us all at the cross, while he showed his love for each of us as well, we to can walk as Jesus did if we want to, only that right now we are all blinded by the clouds of our judgments, with no clear view of where we are going.

 

” The swamp Creature we have made, so we than can be as corrupt as corrupt can be”

” The business man will say what he means, as the Politicization of being correct will only have us all be a hypocrite to all our words”

” The President of the United States has a 24/7 job and is plenty hard enough, without having to worry about this fake political correct society”

” The political correct world around us now, is what’s killing the peace and joy from all our lives, only to bring the drama, hate and ugliness”

 

 

Change a few words, for a new spin…….

IMG_20150104_124946

 

 

” You walk this journey of life, by how you live, why you live and in the manner in which you live”

*** BowlingChef/Stuart Scott***

 

 

This quote by the late Stuart Scott is such a great quote, as you can change a few words, to have it spin a whole new direction. Now when Stuart Scott said this quote at the ESPY awards before he had passed, he was talking about his fight of the dreaded disease Cancer, which this disease has struck so many and all of us have known, or has had a family member be taken by this disease. With this quote you can change a few words and spin the meaning of the quote in a whole new light, which makes this quote one of the best quotes of all time, since the first day of the spoken word.

Now just like anything as we walk our paths of this journey and especially now within this Society, Words are a very powerful tool and words can hurt worse than any kind of physical abuse. Some among us, like those within the media world, make it their job to take the words of others and spin them in a way, that not only fits into their drama full agendas, but will control the rest of us in believing anything they say or write? When they report on a topic, they only will bring to us half of the truth and spin the rest, to make a mountain out of a mole hill, when they dislike the views of an elected official, they will spin their words in a different way, to make them seem evil to the rest of us, to simply try to bring them down, simply because they don’t like them. These types of media agencies think they have mastered the art of the spoken word, but when we look deeply into what we see, when we see through their conspiracy theories, now they look as stupid as their made up words, but their arrogant ways and their arrogant views, will have them so lost within the clouds of their judgments, that they will never see clearly along their paths of their so called journey.

Throughout this Society we have taken the spoken word, to heights that can and will hurt us all deeply, in some cases you have one word with multiple meanings and if you say that word to the wrong party, now they become offended over a simple word? Then you have some among us that have made it their job, to take a spoken word and spin it in a way that will make the one who spoke it, look nothing but evil to the rest of us? Words can be taken out of context and be spun in ways of untruths and non realities, the simple reason for all the misuse of words is, we have become so arrogant toward one another, that we will think nothing to hurt each other with our spoken words.

Words come out of each of our mouths each and every day throughout this journey of life, but in this Society of Political Correction, we have taken something as simple as the spoken word  and spun it in ways, that can hurt us all so deeply, not too mention make us all look evil full of hate? This is not of who we truly are, who we truly are is, one of love, compassion, empathy and kindness, these are the traits that bring us peace and joy, but in the eyes of the media groups, this is not what sells print or their so called news, only drama does that, so they spin the spoken word in any way they can, to sell their agendas to the rest of us, as they live their exotic lifestyles, while the rest of us struggle to walk our paths of this journey of life.

When something as simple as the spoken word now controls of who we are, because of a few that only see greed in their eyes, instead of seeing the love and compassion within us all, then we of this Society have a huge problem we need to fix, so we can all truly heel and get back to truly of who we are, without putting up this front of, someone we truly are not. This will help us all not only be true to ourselves, but be true to each other, so when we speak our words, they won’t be spun in ways of, untruths and unreality. Then we all can walk our paths of this journey in the peace and joy, that Jesus showed us, on his journey here with us.

 

” Words are spoken they don’t magically appear on the print we read, someone puts them there to spin more drama, instead of reality”

” Quotes can inspire as well as lead us into greatness, like this quote being so good that it can bring us to wherever we want to spin it just by changing a few words”

” The spoken word can be spun in any way you like, just that a lot of those ways only breed hatred and evil, bringing pain and hurt to us all”

” Words come out of all our mouths and they can also bring much pain and hurt when we twist around our words we speak”
